Hi all

I need to be able to run an application from a elevated script. How do I do this??

Right now, I'm using the script below, but this doesn't escape the elevation set by the UAC in Vista...

Thanks in advance!
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run """" & Property("CustomActionData") & """",4,False
Set WshShell = Nothing
